I am a big Manny fan and frankly I was never too keen on him going into politics since I think he might be able to do more good on the outside but alas he is a politician and I wish him the best but definitely let down by this article:
Aquino believes couples should be educated on birth control and should be free to choose the method they deem most appropriate, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported. Pacquiao, on the other glove, opposes contraception and paraphrased Genesis to defend his stance.
“God said, ‘Go forth and multiply.’ He did not say, ‘Go and have just one or two children,’” the People’s Champ said, according the paper.
Totally agree with Aquino on this one. The Catholic Church has had their hand in this for far too long and all it takes is a trip to the Philippines to see the poverty and the disparity between the have and have nots.
Manny may have used to be a have not but he is a legend now and has more money than bottom capita of all the people in the Philippines combined. He should have used this opportunity to support contraception and the right to choose. It would help make the country a better place in the long.
